Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

As i said in the slashdot article a few days ago.....

Elan micro electronics has issued a press release.......

"We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it.

"We’ve decided to do something about it,” said Yijing Li, ELANS CEO.

“We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.”

LMAO ;) i could help but do that

Anyway heres a small history of multi-touch tech bare in mind the guy worked for ms
